Opheem is fairly new to Birmingham and it’s taken the place by storm. Not only is this restaurant fancy fine dining it is also Halal which is a really good idea so it caters for all needs. You cant miss Opheem when you drive down the road as it has an illuminated sign on the wall – perfect for that picture spot. On entry you are greeted and then there is the bar area which is pretty big with an indoor cherry blossom (fake) tree but again it sets the scene and you can tell your going to be in for a treat and the restaurant itself is decorated lovely.
The restaurant is just up a few steps and to the right, its big enough and you can see straight into the kitchen. I love that, when you can see the chiefs hard at work creating food that’s delicious and looks like art. The food uses traditional flavours but every dish has a modern twist. You can order al a carte from the menu, or you can have a tasting menu with or without wine pairing. If you choose al a cart you still get little compimetary appertisers which I think is a nice idea as it makes the experience longer, and more ‘adventerous’ as who knew you could cleanse your palette between meals with ice cream? I am a big eater so I had a starter and a main meal with a side.

The staff as expected are lovely and cant do enough for you. To start I went for the paneer which is cheese and then I had goat biryani which was unreal the meat was so tender and my side of rice came in a dish with a nan around the top which was really cool. The whole experience couldn’t be fasulted and I cant wait to visit again but this time I want to do the tasting menu.
